I had always imagined that de Ronde van Vlaanderen must be hardest race in the world. The way I worked it out – having never ridden the course of either event at the time – was that de Ronde had the same cobbles as Roubaix, but with 20% grades thrown in.

  2. thanks for all the Chapeau’s – much appreciated. It’s not really sunk in yet that everything I got up at 5am during the winter months to train for has been and gone. Hope to see some of you in 2015… »

  5. @Buck Rogers Buck the registrations open on November 1st (RVV) and 15th (LBL). I figure if I don’t get in one I’ll get into the other. If I don’t get into those then I’ll have to go for the P-R option. The most I’ve done in a day is 230km which was mai… »

  6. I was all set for the idea of heaven @deakus had set before us until I decided to try for a space on the RVV or LBL sportives, now it looks like the holiday period will be all velodrome and turbo sessions if the weather is beyond a stern application of Ru… »
